RE: HF Batt Maintainer, A Waste?

If you are electrically inclined, there is a relatively simple modification you can make to adjust the voltage on the HF charger pictured above that will allow you to adjust the voltage as you desire. I did it on several of the chargers I have and it is very useful. I believe that I got it from a post on these forums.

RE: HF Batt Maintainer, A Waste?

HF sells a number of different chargers and maintainers. Which one do you have?

RE: Kayak mounting

I did a post on this earlier. Didn't take long to make and works well for me. Do those 5th wheels have receivers on the back? http://i63.tinypic.com/2i20xu8.jpg

RE: Is this worth it. Or am I in over my head...

Not worth it. You could get a used class A in good condition for less and start camping in your spare time. X2 on parting it out.

RE: CB radio vs. cell phone vs. HAM Radio

Is your cell phone service with Verizon? That will give you the best coverage in remote areas. A CB radio is cheap may be very helpful in an emergency on the road even with its short range. I always have one with me.

RE: Desulfating

I have several desulfators that I bought from wizbangplus.com. I have used them for about the last five years. I keep them on my batteries along with a trickle charger while they sit on my workbench during the winter. Many people would tell you that desulfators are voodoo. I have no definitive proof that they work. But I did just test one of my batteries that is 10 years old and got a full 100 amps from it.

RE: Repair Sagging Jayco J-Steel Sofa Seat

Take your RV over to an upholstery shop and get an opinion.

RE: Most Common Method Used to Winterize?

I've always worried that because the RV isn't exactly level, there may be a small amount of water in the pump that doesn't get drained out, so I put some anti-freeze in the FW tank for that reason.

RE: Reading the tea leaves: a new era for public lands?

Unfortunately, politics is directly related to going camping, and this is going to get worse in the future.

RE: How do I get her ready for the long, winter nap?

Once a month, go out and run the generator for a couple of hours. Plug in some heaters to give it a load. Work on an inside project for awhile while the rv is warm.

RE: Mr Heater Buddy

I have the Big Buddy model which has two heating elements and a fan. It takes two small propane bottles. Using both elements it will get the entire front area of my coach comfortably warm within minutes, it seems. But using both elements is too much because the propane will only last about 3 hours and the coach gets way too warm, so one element is really enough for the front area. The heat does not reach the back bedroom as well. I keep the driver and passenger windows open a crack for ventilation and I have two CO detectors in the coach. We also use it for ice fishing and usually wind up just wearing t-shirts while we sit in the shelter. I'm very happy with it.

RE: removing radiator on a 1986 holiday rambler

Don't have pictures, but you're right about what needs to be done. I had a shop here in Denver do it for me. Good luck with the repair.

RE: Electric Fireplace

Thanks everyone. In case anyone is still watching this thread, I finally made it up to the storage yard. The measurements are: 13" high by 15" wide by 13" deep. I've been looking, but still no luck at the big box stores.

RE: Electric Fireplace

Thanks, I'll get the measurements and post them.

Electric Fireplace

I'm looking for a small electric fireplace that will fit in the front space where the small TV's were in the older class A's. Anyone know of any brands/models? Thanks.

RE: Thoughts on circulating warm air in the RV?

We keep our back bedroom warm by heating the compartment under the bed with a small electric heater. The heat then radiates from the bed. It not only keeps the bedroom warm, it also warms the water tank, pump and plumbing.

RE: 8R19.5 Double Coin tires ( just purchased )

Jim, I do have the RT600s. I have not driven them on snow or mud. I don't think that my HR would have very good traction no matter what tires were on it. I always carry chains in case snow catches me by surprise.

RE: 8R19.5 Double Coin tires ( just purchased )

I also bought Double Coins after getting a glowing recommendation from the owner of a string of tire stores in New England. (Pete's Tire Barn) I have had mine for about three years and I am very satisfied.

RE: RVers who buy up campsites

Wow, I never thought that this post would result in 5 pages!! I hope that everyone realizes that this did not involve a reservation. This was what is called a "Walk Up." The camper that I was referring to went to the office, paid for the site and left. The park in question was St. Vrain State Park. It is actually very well-run. The staff do a great job. The post was not meant to be a criticism of the park. We actually had a nice stay there and didn't feel too badly about the other site. As for the general issue at hand, I believe that if I don't want to be at a campsite, I shouldn't prevent someone else from staying there. To me that is common courtesy and to do otherwise would be greedy and selfish. That is the way that I live MY life with the values that I have. I believe that others should do the same, while at the same time fully realizing that many others don't agree.

RVers who buy up campsites

We went to camp at a nice state park just north of Denver. Got a site for the first night, then for the second night we drove over to another open site that was on the water and had a better view. No tag on the post. When my wife went to pay for the site, she was told that it had already been rented by another person who had paid for five nights. The site remained vacant the whole time we were at the campground. Evidently the person just drove to the office, paid for the site and left. Didn't even bother to drive over to it to put his tag on the post. He or she paid for five nights on a Tuesday, most likely so they would be sure to have it for the week-end. This park is very popular and even at this time of year is fully occupied almost every night. Also, during the off-season about half of the sites are closed. By the rules, the person should have occupied the site on the first night, but otherwise there is no violation in what he did. I know that I have been accused of being a "typical selfish ranter", but I believe that this is an example of thoughtless greed. I hope the people who read this post and do this will learn to be able to think of someone besides yourselves, and realize that you are denying other people the chance to go camping. As they say, "OK, rant over. Take your best shot."
